Rafael Nadal paused a tennis match in Mallorca, Spain, as a mother searched for her lost daughter in the stands.

The hometown tennis legend was participating in an exhibition doubles match against retired stars John McEnroe and Carlos Moya when he heard a mother shouting for her missing child. He halted his serve so the attendees and camera crew would focus on locating her.

With their assistance, the mother quickly found her frightened child. As the crowd clapped, she showed gratitude to Nadal for realizing the game could wait.
